9780060589998: 5 Square Low-Carb Meals: The 20-Day Makeover Plan with Delicious Recipes for Fast, Healthy Weight Loss and High Energy

The founder of 5 Squares, a food delivery service that caters to celebrities and everyone who wants to lose weight safely and easily, offers more than 100of her Zone– and low–carb recipes, in a plan for healthy eating––five daily meals at a time.

Over the past several decades, Americans have learned that you can lose weight without giving up variety, taste, and colour from your diet. Instead, the trend in diets is to find a longterm way to eat healthily, lose weight and keep it off, and enjoy meals instead of avoiding them. By choosing the right combination of carbs, fat, and protein, the body processes foods more efficiently.

Monica Lynn, founder of 5 Squares, has run a successful delivery service for the past several years using a low–carb, low–fat approach to dining. The company's philosophy is that by eating 5 healthful meals a day, the metabolism runs smoothly and continuously, rather than receiving a load of calories to process at larger meals. 5 Squares eliminates "empty calorie foods" that contain wheat and sugar, in favour of foods that help build lean muscle mass.In 5 Square Meals, Lynn shares six weeks' worth of meals and snacks, lays out the principles of healthy eating on the plan, and helps readers make the switch to a feel–good lifestyle with such tools as shopping lists and food and exercise journal pages.

5 Square Meals appeals to anyone who wants to "eat clean" but not go hungry, and brings healthy lifestyle into homes.

About the Author:

Monica Lynn is the creator and CEO of 5 squares, Inc., which delivers healthy and delicious food to customers in the greater New York area. She has helped thousands of clients lose weight and improve their overall health and her 5 squares delivery service has been recommended by publications including the New York Daily News, Hamptons, Gotham, and Marie Claire. She lives in New York City.

From Publishers Weekly:

The daughter of a pair culinary whizzes who cooked up mouthwatering meals like mayonnaise fried chicken and Belgian waffles with ice cream, Lynn struggled with her weight for years until a bodybuilder turned her on to a new way of dieting: "eat more, eat clean." Now she runs a successful New York company that delivers low-carb, low-fat meals to its clients five times a day. Eating more often, she says, keeps "your metabolism running at its maximum performance level." And eating clean-no refined sugars or wheat, nix the dairy-"eliminates all empty calories." Readers who want to follow Lynn’s plan will find a surprisingly varied array of ideas here. Ethnic fare, such as Pasta Fagiole and Turkey Vegetable Stir-Fry with Rice Noodles, stands alongside more mainstream dishes, like Chicken Sauteed with Peppers, Eggplant and Mushrooms, and Baked Spice-Rubbed Salmon with Sauteed Spinach. Most dishes are unfussy and can be prepared with minimal effort; likewise, Lynn’s ingredients are common and will be familiar to many dieters (e.g., egg whites, skinless boneless chicken breasts, brown rice, Splenda). The five-meal plan is explained thoroughly the beginning of the book, but even readers who don’t care to follow it will find a number of healthy meal options in this volume.
